Games are not only fun to play, but a great way to learn coding and develop lifelong skills in creative expression. However, learning to make them also has implications for society – as their wide audience reach makes them a great medium to educate people in enjoyable ways.
While building a game where you click objects to clean up a beach, you’ll discover game development fundamentals for Scratch, as well as how to construct game-appropriate algorithms. You’ll learn important concepts such as detecting mouse inputs, setting up tutorials, and also how to develop a scoring system with win conditions. The project will also help you practice important general coding principles as well, including variables to store data, branches, and more.
Whatever game projects you have in mind, these skills with Scratch will teach you the need-to-know foundations for building game instructions and implementing them into real-life coding projects!
